WIGGLING 'LITE' IN GUEST MODE

Modern electro-acoustic music made with modulars

Author Modern electro-acoustic music made with modulars

Is there any newer electro-acoustic music that fits this bill? I really like things like Morton Subotnick's work and Richard Devine's Creature patches, but I've been having trouble finding much other stuff like that. For whatever reason I'm a lot more fascinated with music like this when it's made with just self generating patches and/or improvisation, rather than things that were very deliberately composed, which a lot of electro-acoustic music is, to my understanding.

Rashad Becker:

Richard Scott:

https://cuspeditions.bandcamp.com/album/twinkle-with-sidsel-endresen-d ebris-in-lower-earth-orbit

These are just two artists that came to mind immediately, there are more. 'Debris In Lower Earth Orbit' is phenomenal!

It's worlds away from Subotnick, but the maligned musical genre "electroacoustic improv" comes to mind.

But.. not to be that dude but what makes most of the stuff mention so far electroacoustic (as opposed to simply electronic)? I mean that literally, not rhetorically..

Ann McMillan's "Abstracted Animal and Other Sounds" record is nothing modern, but it's fantastic for anyone into beautiful electroacoustic sounds! I know the Onkyo scene in Japan is still going strong, so maybe look into some of that for recent stuff?

OH! I CAN recommend anything by Spencer Clark! His Tarzana record from two years ago is FANTASTIC! New sounds!

Great thread! More more! TARZANA got me digging on discogs and ordering a copy. Thanks!

Just WOW to Rashad Becker! I am familiar with the PAN label, but sure as shit hadn't heard him. Really great. Bought the albums

Thanks for starting this thread, I am interested to see if anyone has recommendations.. I have recently began working with my modular in the electro-acoustic realm. I have really been listening quite a bit to Iannis Xenakis (not necessarily modular but inspiring none the less).

Koen Holtkamp, one half of Mountains, his solo work is phenomenal and he works with electro-acoustic modular rigs.

Kassal Jaeger is excellent

I just received an album called "Several Circles" by Richard Scott (mentioned above), mastered by Rashad Becker. Some similarities to Rashad's work but still it's own beast. I've listened to one of the two LP's and it's fantastic so far. Bought my copy off of Bandcamp.

Hi5
depending on how much acoustic you are will to embrace this may be of interest

+1 for richard scott smile

I am also interested in the connection between the physical world and our modulars. I stumbled across the KOMA Field kit the other day and it reignited my interest in incorperating some of these approaches in my work. Digging the recs so far.
Has anyone experimented with MAX/MSP and kinect?

It is confusing and probably gets more each year smile
I'd say electronic music that is not especially concerned with traditional tonal systems and beat creation but probably that is not 100% true either..

@Digits mentioned Koen Holtkamp. I just came across his new project, Beast. Volume 1 is some of the most pleasing experimental I've come across recently. Very Reich-ian. His exploration of rhythm and building complexity reminds me very much of Music for 18 Musicians and Music for Pieces of Wood. I believe he's all modular, too.

Check it:

Shameless. I play modular in this electroacoustic quartet. Enjoy!

LOVE this cartoon! Also love the fact that folks are using their modulars for something other than new age and dance music. That said, wondering if bowing a pinecone into Rings then Clouds is the answer?

Starting to work my way through the clips in this thread, LOVE IT!

Cam Deas would be a big recommendation from me:

I suddenly want to track down some pinecones and my piezo mics.

yeah me, but I am more in the deliberately composed w/ a lot of improvisation camp.
